The Walking Dead Sells 8.5 Million Episodes
The Walking Dead has sold over 8.5 million episodes since the game’s first episode launched on April 24th, 2012.
According to FZ, the iOS version of the stood for 25% of the total revenue. So what’s the secret behind the success? Well, Telltale‘s CEO, Dan Connors, believe that it’s due to previous success of the Telltale team.
“The Walking Dead” benefits from the work done on all the previous products. We earned our chops with “Monkey Island” with a lot of the cliffhangers that we did — that’s hugely present in “The Walking Dead.” A lot of the dramatic storytelling and action moments benefit from “Jurassic Park.” It’s really the culmination of years of building to this that makes “The Walking Dead” possible.
In an interview, Connors also revealed that the game sold the most during November and December.
